Registered Sex Offender!

Just found out we have a twenty year old registered sex offender living 80 feet directly behind my house. My wife is absolutely freaking out. He was convicted of SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF A CHILD. I have a 4 yr. old daughter and a 2 month old son. I have absolutely no idea what i should do in this situation. I need some good advice please.


UPDATE!

I called the county Sherrifs office. A very nice lady officer understood my concerns and did some digging for me. She called me back and said his crime was computer related. Whew! That is a load off my mind. Not negating the fact he did something illegal, but at least it was cyber illegal.

Thanks again everyone who participated in this discussion.

You should not let your kids go to his house. Other than that, what can you do?

Relax, just because someone did something once doesn't mean they're going to do it again, and it sure doesn't mean they're going to do it to you or yours.

If I'm not mistaken, explotation of a child could very well mean he had a 17 year old girlfriend when he was 19.

I can understand your concern, but there's nothing you can do. So, worrying is a waste of your emotions.

Sorry.

Approach the guy and put the fear of god in his ass. Let him know you are aware of his sick ass and that he will be in a shallow grave if he is ever seen in the alley or near your kids!

Yeah, that's smart. While you're at it, you may as well double-dog-dare him to **** your four year old.

Not that I'm any expert on this stuff, but I'd absolutely 100% make sure that your daughter knows what to do if approached by a stranger. I guess that's probably good advice regardless of where you live or who you live next to...

Yeah, as a parent, I'm sure he'll want to give the registered sex offender the benefit of the doubt. From my slightly more cynical viewpoint, "sexual exploitation of a child" sounds like something that would be a result of a plea-bargain. I'd want to know the facts of the case before doing anything, but of the options listed the flier idea sounded like it had merit.

Looks to be a pornography offense.

Since he is 20 years old, it may be possible that he filmed something between himself and a girlfriend when underage.

Maybe there is a way to find the details of the crime to find out if he is likely to prey on young children. Should be public record since there was a conviction unless it was a juvenile offense and there is some kind of sealing of record.

Here is the Kansas law for that crime, seems to be for having, making, or copying porn.

21-3516
Chapter 21.--CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS
PART II.--PROHIBITED CONDUCT
Article 35.--SEX OFFENSES
21-3516. Sexual exploitation of a child. (a) Sexual exploitation of a child is:

(1) Employing, using, persuading, inducing, enticing or coercing a child under 18 years of age to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of promoting any performance;

(2) possessing any film, photograph, negative, slide, book, magazine or other printed or visual medium or any audio tape recording or any photocopy, video tape, video laser disk, computer hardware, software, floppy disk or any other computer related equipment or computer generated image that contains or incorporates in any manner any film, photograph, negative, photocopy, video tape or video laser disk in which a visual depiction of a child under 18 years of age is shown or heard engaging in sexually explicit conduct with intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires or appeal to the prurient interest of the offender, the child or another;

(3) being a parent, guardian or other person having custody or control of a child under 18 years of age and knowingly permitting such child to engage in, or assist another to engage in, sexually explicit conduct for any purpose described in subsection (a)(1) or (2); or

(4) promoting any performance that includes sexually explicit conduct by a child under 18 years of age, knowing the character and content of the performance.

(b) As used in this section:

(1) "Sexually explicit conduct" means actual or simulated: Exhibition in the nude; sexual intercourse or sodomy, including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital or oral-anal contact, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex; masturbation; sado-masochistic abuse for the purpose of sexual stimulation; or lewd exhibition of the genitals, female breasts or pubic area of any person.

(2) "Promoting" means procuring, selling, providing, lending, mailing, delivering, transferring, transmitting, distributing, circulating, disseminating, presenting, producing, directing, manufacturing, issuing, publishing, displaying, exhibiting or advertising:

(A) For pecuniary profit; or

(B) with intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire or appeal to the prurient interest of the offender, the child or another.

(3) "Performance" means any film, photograph, negative, slide, book, magazine or other printed or visual medium, any audio tape recording or any photocopy, video tape, video laser disk, computer hardware, software, floppy disk or any other computer related equipment or computer generated image that contains or incorporates in any manner any film, photograph, negative, photocopy, video tape or video laser disk or any play or other live presentation.

(4) "Nude" means any state of undress in which the human genitals, pubic region, buttock or female breast, at a point below the top of the areola, is less than completely and opaquely covered.

(c) Sexual exploitation of a child is a severity level 5, person felony.

(d) This section shall be part of and supplemental to the Kansas criminal code.

History: L. 1978, ch. 122, 1; L. 1985, ch. 109, 1; L. 1986, ch. 121, 1; L. 1989, ch. 90, 1; L. 1992, ch. 298, 29; L. 1993, ch. 291, 51; L. 1995, ch. 251, 11; L. 1998, ch. 104, 2; July 1.

I wouldn't threaten the guy but I'd sure as hell make sure he was aware that I and everyone else in the neighborhood knew who he was and what he did. I would know the whole neighborhood knew because I would personally tell them. I wouldn't make it threatening or confrontational, just chat with him calmly and let him know you're all a little nervous and that you'll be keeping an eye on him. Ask him what he did, it could be something as simple as the 17yr old girlfriend thing (you may be able to find out online or from the cops as well). Tell him it's nothing personal but you read the stats and you know the recidivism rates for sex abusers are high.

Leave on a positive note, something like "I hope you're past this and ready to live a clean life" or some other such crap. If he knows he's being watched and knows that everyone in the neighborhood knows about him he will be less likely to operate in the neighborhood if and when he makes another move.

As for changing your lifestyle, make sure you keep the doors and windows locked at all times. I wouldn't have my kids in the back yard in their bathing suits playing in the sprinkler. Simple things like that.

What an interesting dilemma.

We have allowed a known sexual felon that has served his time and is released back into the community and now none of us want to live near him.

If I were you and renting, I would move immediately. If I owned, it would be more difficult. Is the offender owning or renting?

The flyer idea isn't bad, but I'd try to make sure that he doesn't know WHO posted the flyers. For the record, the poll wasn't there yet when I responded.

I realize he probably won't want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I don't think there's any way to find out the details of the case -- I think the name of the offense is all you get to know.

In any case, I stand by what I said -- there's really nothing that can be done. You can make people aware, but the bottom line is that you can't force him to move, and if you move yourself you're basically sucummbing to terror. All you can do is educate your kids and hope for the best.

Probably good advice if you've got the balls to confront him. Nice post.
